true if your dding the car but the 5x114.3 hubs are a much stronger design and is worth the trouble if you plan on tracking it

thx guys, looks like i will keep 5x100 for a while unless ill find a smoking deal for full swap
now I'm thinking about rim size and offset, i'm looking for 250whp for now, and 300-350 after engine swap & turbo upgrade, guess there is no practical need for 245+ tires

The main difference in the 5x114.3 sti hubs is that the front bearing is much stronger than the 5x100, and once the bearing dose wear out its much easyer to replace because you done have to press it out, its just 4 bolts and you replace the whole hub and bearing as an assembly. But the rear bearing is still the same just the spline count on the hub thats pressed into it it different to work with the bigger axles used with the R180 and thats why you need the whole rear end off an STi to swap to 5X114.3.

04 sti is not 5x114. Thats why I said hell need the entire rear end out of the same year sti.

its not really worth the trouble until your current ones fail due to tracking.

true unless of course your hub catastrophically fails as you hit the apex of a turn at 90mph.
